Proven Security and Authentication

The Ambassador Edge Stack makes securing microservices easy with a comprehensive set of security functionality, including automatic TLS, authentication, rate limiting, WAF integration, and fine-grained access control.

See all Security and Authentication Features:
  • Authentication
  • Rate Limiting
  • Custom Request Filters
  • WAF Integration
  • External Filters

Simplified Kubernetes Management with the Ingress Controller

Routing traffic into your Kubernetes cluster requires modern traffic management. The API Gateway contains a modern Kubernetes ingress controller that supports a broad range of protocols including gRPC and gRPC-Web, supports TLS termination, and provides traffic management controls for resource availability.

See all Ingress Controller Features:
  • Kubernetes Integration
  • Protocol Support
  • Cross-Origin Resource Sharing
  • TLS
  • Automatic HTTPS

Simplified Traffic Management to Ensure High Availability

Microservices may crash, but your application shouldn’t. The API Gateway includes support for automatic retries, timeouts, circuit breakers, and rate limiting to maximize application availability. In addition to keeping your application available, the API Gateway supports progressive releases with fine-grained traffic management controls.

See all Traffic Management Features:
  • Load Balancing
  • Circuit Breaking
  • Progressive Delivery

Decentralized, Declarative Workflow

Edge Stack empowers development teams to safely manage their ingress, using the same workflow you already use with Kubernetes.

  • Configure using Kubernetes Custom Resource Definitions (CRDs)
  • Protocol Support
  • Zero downtime reconfiguration
  • Integrate with existing GitOps / Kubernetes workflows

Support for Popular Service Meshes

Ambassador natively supports service meshes for service discovery, end-to-end TLS, and observability. Ambassador has customers with production integrations on all the most popular meshes. In addition to service mesh support, the API Gateway also supports multi-cluster Kubernetes when used with LinkerD.
